MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur, Sept.3 (PIA) -- Around 1,000 residents in the province received relief goods from the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) government on Saturday, August 31.

Spearheaded by Office of Regional Vice-Governor, the distribution of relief goods was held in Ganassi town and in Brgy. Tuca, this city.

Each of the beneficiaries received three  kilos of rice, two  cans of sardines, two  cans of corned beef and packs of noodles.

ARMM Vice-Governor Haroun Alrashid Lucman Jr. said the distribution of relief goods is one of their strategies to alleviate poverty in the region.

"Relief goods are not only for those affected by disasters, there is also a need to go to the ground and provide basic services to the poor," he said.

Lucman is also the concurrent secretary of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DWSD) in ARMM.

Aside from the relief goods, the Department of Health (DOH) in the region also provided free medical services like consultation and vaccination, free circumcision and haircut during the event. (APB/PIA-10)
